Since Shake's project file format is ASCII and is practically a scripting language, most of the time you can just delete the offending lines (which almost always belong to either a RotoShape or a QuickPaint node).

You can also try Blender's Sequence editor.

Re: Problems with an external SCSI enclosure and an Octane

Spoke too soon... I got file corruption with the above mentioned setup, which as far as I can tell is caused by the total length of the SCSI cables (external cable plus internal enclosure cable plus internal cable used as a terminator). I exchanged the external cable with the internal cable that I u...

Re: Problems with an external SCSI enclosure and an Octane

Just a quick update for anyone interested... I finally managed to solve the problem. It seems that the LVD terminator was the culprit and once I used another terminator everything worked without problems (in fact I used a self-terminating internal SCSI cable, since I didn't have a real terminator, b...

Re: Problems with an external SCSI enclosure and an Octane

Unfortunately I don't have any other machine that has SCSI support, so I can only test the enclosure with the Octane. The disks are 68-pin not 80-pin SCA, so I can't connect them to the internal controller without an adapter, but I did manage to find a way to connect a single disk to the Octane. I c...

Re: Matador

Does anyone know if the Matador Reference Guide and Tutorial Guide PDFs are still available from somewhere? I checked the Internet Archive Wayback Machine and the Matador support page is still available, but unfortunately the links to the PDFs don't work.

Thanks in advance,

Re: Problems with an external SCSI enclosure and an Octane

I just checked the SCSI cable length and it's 90 cm by itself, but there is around 115 cm inside the enclosure (5 * 23 cm - from the back connector, through the four disks, to the other back connector with the terminator attached) bringing the total to 205 cm. I'll try to find another SCSI cable, ho...

Problems with an external SCSI enclosure and an Octane

I'm trying to get a SCSI enclosure taken from an old editing machine to work with my Octane. The enclosure has four Atlas 10K V 72.8 GB hard disks with 68-pin connectors inside, which as far as I can tell are functioning. There is no model brand or number on the box, but it's has two 68-pin connecto...

Re: Impact 10000 irix 6.2 wm freeze

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try doing a chkconfig desktop off and see what happens.

Re: Impact 10000 irix 6.2 wm freeze

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but I'm having the exact same problem on my Octane and I can't seem to find neither what's the reason for the lockups, nor the solution. The Octane is a single 400 MHz machine, with VPro V8 graphics, 1.5 GB RAM (3 banks filled, 1 empty), a single 72 GB 10000 RPM dis...
